About this product
- DescriptionThis study of contemporary crypto-Jews--descendants of European Jews forced to convert to Christianity during the Spanish Inquisition--traces the group's history of clandestinely conducting their faith and their present-day efforts to reclaim their past. Janet Liebman Jacobs masterfully combines historical and social scientific theory to fashion a brilliant analysis of hidden ancestry and the transformation of religious and ethnic identity.
